The aim of the public consultation is to gather inputs from stakeholders on the scope of possible future EU-level actions in demand-side policies for industrial innovation policy.<br/><br/>
As Europe (at EU, Member States and regional levels) now has some initial experience in demand-side policies and the political and economic priorities are clear, the leverage potential of using these policies increases and more sectors could benefit from them. A menu of policy tools is in place but can be further elaborated. There is room and need for tailoring tools and support mechanisms by market sector.
The Commission is therefore calling for ideas for potential new policy measures and focus areas for future targeted demand-side innovation actions at EU level, to enable faster uptake of innovations and to create a better environment for creating innovations in order to maintain the value and business investments in Europe.
The aim of the public consultation is to gather inputs from stakeholders on the scope of possible future EU-level actions in demand-side policies for industrial innovation policy. The consultation runs until 6 September.
